Scottish Borders Walk
Broad Law from the Megget Stone
Walk Route Description
Broad Law is the second highest summit in the Southern Uplands of Scotland at 840 metres and ranks as a Corbett. Like most of the hills in this area it is rounded and grassy offering fine views once height is gained.
The start is from the Megget Stone (Grid ref. NT151203) on the minor road from Tweedsmuir to St Mary's Loch between the Megget and Talla Reservoirs. From the cattlegrid adjacent to the Megget Stone follow the fence in a northerly direction up onto the spur of Fans Law. The onward route continues onto Cairns Law.
In poor visibility it is essential that you do not head mistakenly for Talla Cleuch Head where the fence forks just below Cairn Law. From this latter minor summit continue along the fence in a northerly direction towards the summit of Broad Law, which is sadly home to a Air Traffic Control Beacon and a Police Radio Tower. However despite this ironmongery the views are superb with the whole of the Southern Uplands on view.
The return route is to retrace your steps to the Megget Stone.
